in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
this is all policy. the president could be on the defensive talking about jobs, talking about debt. what they are looking at is sort of, sometimes, you know, a good defense is the best offense. so they want to go after mitt romney on these very same issues. they say that when you look at mitt romney's plan, even though he doesn't have a record as president, the math just doesn't add up. listen to stefanie cutter. >> he will will say he is going to cut the deficit, please. he wants $2 trillion in new defense spending that the pentagon didn't ask for. a 5 trillion-dollar tax cut wealthy that he won't say how he will pay for. >> i spoke to two different officials with the president, he said he was very calm, very cool, getting downtown in his hotel right now. remarkable to be calm this calm right now knowing so much is on the line, shep. >> shepard: a lot in deed. ed henry live in denver. let's bring in chris wallace. have you spoken to both camps today, what did you learn? >> i have been working the phones trying to get a preview and the most interesting thing i learned is that the romney
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c

getting squeeze. let's go forward to january 1. that's when defense department cuts are supposed to take place. 60 days in advance that november 2, warning notices are supposed to go out from contractors to their employees saying here comes some layoffs. the administration does not want layoff warnings going off right before the election. so they said to people like lockheed martin. you don't need to send these layoff warnings out. they say they are hypothetical. lockheed martin says it is the law. we must send the out the notices. the administration says if you don't send out the warnings, then we'll indem anyify you, we'll cover lawsuits that might result if there are layoffs. so the taxpayer is on the hook for not sending out these warning notices. it's pure politics. martha: it's unbelievable, frankly. either we are going to have these defense cut layoffs as a result of sequestration because nobody in washington seems to be able to come together on a budget deal. don't they have to face the ramifications of that and say we are going to have these defense cuts and that means we have t
. >>shepard: you listen carefully to their message and it sounds like the folks lean on defense and foreign policy and they have been going after the president and his team regarding the attack at the embassy. >>guest: absolutely. if you look at the new "washington post" poll, obama is leading on almost every issue. romney only leads on handling the deficit but the two are split on the economy. obama is leading on medicare, health care. people find his international policies doing a little bit better, as well. the romney campaign is trying to cut into the margins and what has been obama's strength, to bring that down ahead of the debate on wednesday which will focus on domestic policy which is interesting that romney is going after foreign policy this week. >>shepard: i found it interesting, as well, but based on what has happened the last couple of weeks, i guess governor romney and his team think we have an opportunity here, why not seize it? >>guest: absolutely. we saw the op-ed today from romney. that's a point of weakness for obama at this point. so the romney campaign will go after th
's why we are now building a nato missile defense system to protect our populations against milz attacks. piracy, this is the reasons why we conduct counterpiracy operation. so across the board we have taken on responsibility for new missions but, again, with the core task to protect our citizens against any threat. >> rose: how much of that is borne by the united states, both in terms of budget and in terms of resources? >> a lot, of course. the united states is the biggest ally accounting for around 80% of the overall defense expenditure in our alliance. so it really is a huge contribution. but politically i think it's of jut most importance also for a superpower like the united states to have allies in europe, like-minded democracies. i find it of utmost importance that democracies in europe and north america stand together shoulder to shoulder to defend our common values. >> rose: when you talk about missile defense, against missiles coming from where? >> well, actually, our missile defense system is not directed against any specific country but it aims at protecting our populations
of the trio had decided to break with the defense team. >> i do not exactly know what has happened. we met of three women on friday. one of them confirmed we would continue to work together. something must have happened over the weekend. >> the lawyers believe someone may have pressured her to create discord between the women and their legal representatives. the others are sticking by their story that they did not commit a crime when they staged a protest in the moscow cathedral. >> my client as already stated it was an ethical mistake to stage a protest at the cathedral of christ the savior. i think those apologies should have been accepted. >> but apologies are not enough for radical members of the russian orthodox church. they staged a protest outside of the court demanding a higher penalty for pless-- for pussy riot. >> syria's for and -- foreign minister. >> addressing the u.n. general assembly, he claimed that france, the u.s., saudi arabia, qatar, and turkey were injured. in the syrian domestic fears -- were interfering in syrian domestic affairs. in syria itself, dozens of civilian

they will hear a challenge to the defense of marriage act which you'll remember the administration has announced it will no longer defend in court. there is also the prop 8 case out of california. a voter approved amendment to the state's constitution which would give only legal recognition to marriage between a man and a woman. we're waiting. standing by, shep. >> shepard: all right. shannon bream in d.c. shannon, thanks. new accusations tonight that the justice department is spying on a lot more americans these days. that's according to the american civil liberties union. the aclu reports that from 2009 to 2011 orders for warrantless telephone surveillance went up 60%. emails and network data increased by 361%. this kind of surveillance doesn't involve monitoring the content of conversations they tell us. that is the government is keeping tabs on to whom people are talking but not what they are saying still an aclu representative says a rise in surveillance is some cause for concern. >> the people have a right to know how these extremely invasive surveillance powers are being used and if there
an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east. [video clip] >> i believe that this message must be rejected by all those who respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected cam

of corruption in any area means there is an effect on efficiency. for this reason the ministry of defense at the ministry of interior have built their own counter corruption programs which have examined the way they do business and the money flows, the material flows within the system. as a result of their close examination of how they do business internally throughout the chain of command, i can tell you in number of people have been arrested and the message is out there within the ministry of interior and the m.o.d. that corruption will not be tolerated. this requires intensive efforts to get to grips with. the security ministries are in the lead across the government in spearheading the counter corruption efforts. there was a second part to your question. >> to elaborate in the manner in which york implementing the guardian angel program. if you can give some examples of that, the guardian angel program. >> it is the way that people go about their business. keeping an eye on their mates all taking exercise while playing sports or relaxing within -- where has that task to stay on one si
way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my wa
reduction plan. he wants to spend $2 trillion more in defense, $5 trillion more in a tax cut won't tell us how you pay for, before you even start talking about deficit reduction. it's a joke to think mitt romney will actually take action to redaus the deficit. >> taxes, this week he did come out with this proposal of eliminating $17,000 in deductions. >> right. >> your response to that? >> well, you know, he left out a number of different details of that proposal but i would also say that limiting deductions to $17,000 for middle-class families still results in a tax increase. even in just the health premium deduction, for families last year, were about $15,000. there you go. what happens to the mortgage deduction, charitable deduction, child deduction. he's raising taxes on middle class families. >> if this comes up and mitt romney starts to do that math that paul ryan wouldn't do, i'm sure this will be a topic of discussion. >> how worried are you about the jobs report on friday? >> we face this every month. you'll probably see steady progress. we've created 5.1 million private sector jo
certainly that could be big. the defense of marriage act, gay marriage is a huge issue. then there are things that could end up on the docket like voting rights cases. so it could be quite a year, carol. >> yeah. we'll be watching. as i'm sure you will. joe johns reporting live for us this morning. >>> maybe he's just spinning it like a politician. or maybe there really is a chance maria shriver will take around schwarzenegger back. it doesn't look good. not in light of the revelations he made in his autautobiography. the way he handled the situation involving the son he formered with his former maid while he was married to mariashriver. here's what he told cbs's "60 minutes." >> very difficult. strange. bizarre. whatever you want to call it. but it's the best way i could handle it. it was one of those things we thought about, you know, denial. i kind of put it away and just said to myself, i'm going to put this away. >> how can you put it away? you have a child. >> i know. but that's just the way i operate. >> on "good morning america" schwarzenegger says he wishes his
in a lot of -- using a lot of defense mechanisms. he uses a lot of regression where he admits that something has happened, such as the birth of his son with his housekeeper, but then, you know, shuts that away and may say, well, i didn't really acknowledge it until years later when he started looking like me. i think he knew from the very beginning that was probably his son because certainly he was involved with this woman and he claims, yes, there was another man in the picture. that's why he didn't own up, but arnold, i really do believe knew what he was doing. he is a smart man. >> jeff, a lot of people look at this, and it's, you know, quite frankly, a lot of my female friends look at this and say, wow, this is a familiar scenario here. someone has cheated on them in their life. why do they do it? >> well, i think a lot of it is the big t, high testosterone. a lot of it is being -- >> that sounds like an excuse. >> well, it is. we do know that because men have more testosterone, they act out more, but there's something called commonsense. there's something called being fai
the nuclear enrichment program. it is a country on the defensive, and again, both president bush and president obama have done a very good job of pushing the iranians into a corner and getting a lot of countries around will to support us with the sanctions. we ought to continue that policy, no matter who wins the election, to negotiate and be very tough-minded and prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. host: susan is on the line, an independent. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span, and mr. burns' comments are very great. i really appreciate them. i have two questions, one regarding libya, and other regarding the difference between the two candidates for president on foreign policy. one is regarding libya. do you think that it could have been an al qaeda attacked from the get go, and even the guys who made the film in california? number one. no. 2, regarding the foreign policy issue, do you think that president obama has more of a high-tech idea of our military in the future rather than the boots on the ground type of military we have seen in the past, where we put our boys in harm'
to deliver a vigorous defense of president bashar al assad's handling of the crisis that has now engulfed syria for the past 18 months and, of course, has spiralled into a civil war. >>> the supreme court opened its new term this morning at 10:00. it is a big one. important cases the court may decide include affirmative action, same-sex marriage and voting rights. yesterday six of the nine justices attended the red mass at the roman catholic cathedral of st. matthew the apostle in washington held every year just before the start of the court's new session. >>> we expect an announcement today about the mystery surrounding jimmy hoffa's remains. investigators are waiting for tests on mud and clay samples from a home in suburban detroit. they searched under a shed there on friday. you'll remember a tipster claims he saw what appeared to be a body being buried at that site the day after the former teamster's chief disappeared back in 1975. >>> the super bowl champion new york giants are off to a shy start. i'm happy about that. they lost their second game of the season to a division rival on
a number of incidents between the two countries. last june, syrian antiaircraft defenses shot down a turkish military reconnaissance jet, killing two pilots, both sides disagree on where exactly that incident took place. but the turks did not really fire back. they didn't use force aside from condemning that attack. the syrians accused turkey of arming the rebels that are fighting against bashar al assad's regime. so this is a very tense relationship and there are voices here at turkey calling for more significant retaliation in response to the death of these five turkish citizens. >> how do the turks feel, ivan, when it comes to possible military intervention in syria? >> i think there are a lot of misgivings, brooke. there are a lot of voices here that are afraid that turkey could be dragged into a war with syria. opposition, political parties have spoken out against the government's policy of supporting the syrian opposition and supporting the syrian rebels. they actually accused the u.s. of trying to outsource turkey to try to bring down the assad regime. those are charges that
